Step 2

This is the moment you've been waiting for. It's time to begin construction of your house. Try to construct some wooden stairs where the entrance to your house will be. This will make it easer to get in and out during construction.

• Place 1x Wooden Stairs (0/1)
• Build 1x Wooden Stairs (0/1)

Step 4

If you keep walking on those supports you're going to twist your ankle. You can start constructing floors on top of the supports. To attach the the floors to the top of the supports you may need to turn off compound building mode. This prevents you from overlapping some blocks in the same space. Press "Letter Z" to toggle compound building mode on/off or hold "Left Shift" to disable it momentarily.

• Place 4x Floor (0/4)
• Build 4x Floor (0/4)

Step 5

Equip the wall available in the general search ("Letter G"). Most walls only rotate around their vertical axis but a this one can be rotated on another axis. You'll want to place walls on top of the floors. This will require compound building mode be turned on so that the walls and floors can share the same space. Go ahead and try building a few. Make sure you don't block access to your stairs!

• Place 2x Log Wall (0/2)
• Build 2x Log Wall (0/2)
